The Tempest Brought to Life in Staging Shakespeare Workshops

Island School hosted a Staging Shakespeare workshop with the UK based company Time2Act, 28 Oct 2016.  Year 8 Students worked on creative ways to bring ‘The Tempest,’ to life on the stage.  Pranav in 8W said: “It was a really interesting day.  It taught me things I never knew about Shakespeare like the use of verse and prose in the plays and the fact that Shakespeare was writing for actors to perform rather than for readers.”  Time2Act also worked with Year 13 High Level Literature students focussing on how the language of the play reveals characterisation.
